About Me

I moved to Jacksonville in 2016 from Miami and it’s been one of the best choices I have made. I live in one of the oldest neighborhoods and enjoy my free time biking or walking to nearby parks and restaurants. Any other free time is well spent with those closest to me.

My philosophy of care is an emphasis on the relationship between myself and my patient. Without a strong bond, it is much more difficult to make desired and/or necessary changes. I think it is important to keep therapy in simple and understandable terms to yield of the best outcomes.

I volunteer time in a few of the historic communities in the Riverside area because I take pride in my neighborhood and want to be part of the process in making it beautiful and enjoyable for others.
